  2. In the same pot, melt the remaining butter over low heat. Add the leeks and saute 3 minutes. Add the stock and parsley. Cover and increase the heat to medium. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to simmer and cook for 1 hour. Add the potatoes, remaining milk, cream, bouillon, salt and pepper. Whisk until smooth and heat for 5 minutes longer.
